Sharon did an excellent job recording a funeral for me and streaming it to Zoom. Audio was clear even with a mask on and the video was excellent. She was easy to work with and I would highly recommend her services.

I couldn't be more pleased by the way Sharon and team captured the memories of my retirement ceremony. So grateful for what she did and how she did. A true professional that ensured the memories of that day will never fade.

Sharon and her team did a truly amazing job putting together our video project. I saw the finished version at a "Watch Party" and everyone was impressed with the professional quality of the finished product. I know we weren't an easy customer to work with, but Sharon managed to keep us moving forward towards our goal and she pulled out all the stops to get it finished on time.

Sharon is a pleasure to work with. She has many ways to get to the right result, which was especially helpful with my team in 4 different locations! She made everyone comfortable. She produced new intro, outro and trailer for the Flight Safety Detectives podcast and YouTube channel. Check out her great work!

Sharon was a delight to work with and very professional. I was impressed with her creativity and desire to ensure I was satisfied with the video she produced for the launch of my book. I did have suggested edits which she incorporated in a timely and creative way and am very happy with the end product.

We hired Picture This Video to live-stream and record our church sponsored public lecture. Sharon was wonderful to work with, well-organized, responsive to questions--of which we had many as this was the first time we'd hosted an in-person talk with live-streaming. Duane who works with her was excellent too. They visited the venue several weeks prior to the lecture and gave us thoughtful suggestions about our set up and lighting. On the day of the lecture they were punctual and efficient in setting up their equipment and equally efficient in packing up after the event was over. We were very pleased with every aspect of the services provided by Picture This Video and are happy to recommend them.

Sharon is a gem! I had a last minute project and called Picture This Video and without question Sharon and her team were on it in a flash. I couldn't have asked for a better video and production team then Picture this Video. She took time with me to ensure I understood what to expect before, during, and after production. When they arrived at the location they were prompt, professional, knowledgeable, and creative when it came the shots needed to make this video special. Her turn around time was exactly what she said and the video was more then I expected but, exactly what I envisioned. Thanks Picture This Video you made my Virtual Event super special.

When the pandemic shutdowns hit about month before our largest fundraiser, we committed to going ahead with our annual benefit breakfast “virtually”. But we had no idea how to do that. We had work with PictureThisVideo before, and they were like the cavalry coming to our rescue. Working closely with us and a corporate partner, they created a Zoom webinar presentation that was simply excellent. We have received nothing but positive feedback, including this comment: “Truly a fantastic remote event! My sister in Chicago was watching and very impressed with the overall content and smoothness of the event given the challenges we face this year (and her job is event and conference planning, so she’s a pro!)” Our event raised well over a quarter million dollars!

I have worked with Picture This Video as a preferred video partner for a few years and they have always delivered high-quality a product. I have used their video production services for my clients and recently for my own business. The social media video PTV delivered was a great way for me to introduce a new service. I especially like that the file was delivered in formats I can easily deploy on multiple platforms. I will continue to work with Picture This Video and strongly recommend them for any video production needs!

Sharon is amazing to work with! She quickly "got" who we were and what was most important for us to convey in a 30 second commercial with a tight deadline. Will work with again in the future!

I had such a great experience working with the team at Picture This Video. I was well prepared leading up to taping and made to feel super comfortable making the video, which isn't an easy thing to accoplish for me. The vdieo turned out great! I would highly reccomend using them for all of your video needs.

Our experience with Sharon and Picture This Video was first-rate. The video she produced for us was professional, and she was willing to make edits (quickly!) to fine-tune the video to meet our exact specifications. Sharon was great to work with, and we're very happy with the final result.

Sharon put together my business video and I absolutely love it! We spoke for just a few minutes and she was able to put together a video immediately with just one edit! She is amazing!

We asked Sharon to produce a video featuring residents and life at The Old Soldiers Home. The home is/was closed to the public during Covid so Sharon had to work with the residents remotely. She helped define the vision/purpose, guided the development of a script, helped identify still photos to insert in the video - and delivered us an OUTSTANDING final product. All for a very affordable price. We are very grateful for Sharon's patience and professionalism.

I recently worked with Sharon to create a promotional video for a non-profit. She seamlessly worked with various file formats and was mindful of budget, even locating an appropriate song to use at no additional cost. Sharon is a natural storyteller and a quick study. She listened to what was needed and remained flexible throughout the process. Sharon is a natural storyteller and a quick study and was pleased with the high-quality video she delivered. I enjoyed working with her and hope to have the opportunity to work with her again.

Sharon, was amazing to work with. After doing virtual events for 15 months and doing our own video editing (which was very time consuming) it was wonderful to work with her on creating a fantastic virtual event. She worked with all of the speakers to make sure the recordings were great. She was able to add features to the videos to enhance the experience without being asked to do so. She also was very flexible when speakers moved recording times and even doing video editing the night before the event due to speakers requests. I couldn't have done this event without her. She was a great addition to the team!

Simple process. Great response and professionally done. Couldn't ask anything more. In a world full of mediocre marketing support, Sharon and Picture This Video are doing the Lord's work in supporting small business with good videos!

Working with Sharon Sobel (Maven of Picture This Video) to make our short film was easy and we also just had a great time. She turned the product around in no time and was a knowledgeable guide in the filming and editing processes. I am so grateful for her expertise and care. Mary J.

Sharon Sobel of Picture This Video created a short video for me highlighting my services as a Certified Senior Real Estate Specialist. I posted this very professionally produced video on social media and received more interest than any other video that I have posted. Thank you Sharon.

From start to finish, Sharon was instrumental in coordinating the entire production of my commercial. She advised me how to communicate with videographer most effectively so we captured everything she would need post-production and answered all my concerns. She caught the vibe that I wanted and even in the first draft nailed down so many of our critical needs. Through the editing process, we had difficulty finding the right music and so very resourcefully, she reallocated our budget to include a musician who brilliantly executed a piece for us. She managed her time so well that we didn't use all our hours - I'm really looking forward to working with Sharon again and highly recommend her!
